Jaswant's decision took his parents by surprise. After all, he had a master's degree in management from a prestigious business school and in fact had a hand full of appointment orders to choose from. Yet he announced that, he would seek his future in the art path. And this came up after he was sent to get the blessings of their guru. His parents were quite sure that this was just a flash of the youth mindset. They too knew that he was very good in pencil sketches. He won many prizes in interschool competitions. But that ended there. The moment he was into higher studies, he was constantly reminded about the family's poor financial status and the expectation around him. His graduation was possible, thanks to an education loan and his mom's remaining jewels. As per his parents' wish, he went and saw the guru, to seek his blessing. His guru was being interviewed then. He was in his mid-fifties only, but had that radiant smile and a smooth accent. While waiting, Jaswant was listening to the conversation. The reporter asked harsh questions - "Why did you choose this spiritual path? From your history, I see that you came from a healthy background, was a successful business man and have a family too. Did you choose this for fame and that satisfactory feeling that many worthier heads fall on your feet? Can you really say that you denounced everything?". The guru smiled and said, "Let me explain - I was conditioned to think about whats expected of me always. Rich and mild mannered, as well as learning the business quick. Just like any other, I married and had my family. But I was always longing for something and could never be satiated. When I thought about it, I realized that, whenever I was on the spiritual path, I was strangely happier and felt at ease. So, one fine day, I explained this to my family, who were so kind to let me go on this path. Had I been wiser, I would have achieved more, by deciding this earlier. And about fame and other's awe - they mean nothing in this path. Its always your effort and your achievement that counts. I have dined with golden utensils and those made of mud. Now they are the same." "But doesn't it mean shriking your responsibility?", asked the reporter. "You cannot satisfy everyone every time. If you try, you will never be in a position to do what you aspire! And in your choice you may win or lose. Come whatever, its your choice! And I have never denounced anything. On the contrary, I am trying to accept everything!", he said. Hence Jeswant took that decision.
